CFP, "Early Modern Self-Help". I am soliciting papers on any aspect of self-help or auto-didacticism in early modern Europe from any discipline appropriate to the 2011 Renaissance Society of America (RSA) meeting. Topics may include but are not limited to the following as they relate to self-help: validity as an early modern concept; analysis of individual texts or entire categories (manuals, how-to books, devotional books, and others); readers and reception of such books; rhetoric of self-help; theoretical approaches; literacy; identity; subjectivity.
Please send to Carol Harllee (email@example.com) by May 20 the following information: Full name as listed in the RSA member database, email address, affiliation, paper title, 150 word abstract, brief CV, A/V requirements.
Membership: You must be a member of the RSA to present. However, if you are not currently a member but are interested in joining in order to present I will make a decision about which papers to include in the panel in good time for you to be able to join prior to the deadline.
